Aaaand I'm back - with a winner!

Hi All~
My, my... where has the time gone, and where the heck have I been?? Well... I'm not sure to be honest. I admit, it's been a bit hectic around these parts, but geez. I recently started watching Dr. Who (starting with the 2005 season, the 9th Doctor {singing} it's amaaaaaazing!) and it's kinda like that, like I jumped into the Tardis and it seems like I've only been gone a few minutes, but when I come back to check in with y'all, I see that I've been gone for over two weeks, TWO WEEKS!?? How's that even possible? 

Anyway, so yeah ~ we have a winner from tea party week, drum roll please.....

Yay, Bex! Bex is a fellow stitcher, and all around awesome chickadee. She makes rad stuff, she's a crazy animal lover, a real life, red hot, pin up girl, and she has a wicked sense of humor. I me some Bex!
Bex, I'll email you to get your mailin' particulars, then I'll be sending you some tea (caffeine free~Spackle~teehee!) and a wee little stitchy goody shortly!

So what've I been working on these last couple of weeks? Well, it's still a secret, but I can tell you it's a Phat Quarter Swap and it's based on a little book that I've loved for many, many years. And that I'm making it for my partner, someone whose work I've admired for a long time. I took some some sneaky, nearly indiscernible pictures to send to my partner, Nicole, as proof that I really am stitching something for her (I'm shamefully late on this swap, like bad.) that I can also share with you guys. I've spent a lot of time unpicking and restitching this piece. I'd really like it to be as perfect as possible. In fact I'm hoping to get in at least an hour of stitching tonight, as soon as I wrap up here.

Mmm, shiny!

I dare not show any more, I want it to be a surprise.

I've already received the piece my partner made for me, and I CAN NOT wait to show it to you guys!! It nearly knocked my socks clean off. I got goosebumps when I pulled it from it's packing. No joke, goosebumps.

Sorry I've been gone so long bloggy friends, I promise to be more mindful of the time next time I take a spin in the Tardis. And oh, hey! I see up there that there are a few new folks following along, wahoo!! I'm really happy to have you here, welcome aboard!!

Talk again soon, pinkie swear!

Welcome aboard the Tardis! My daughter and I started watching a few months ago and have taped all of the last 3 or 4 seasons and finally caught up! It's addicting.
I enjoy each and every thing you post here. One of these days I'll add needlepoint to my crafts. Hope to see you again someday. :o)
